Car Accidents

Car accidents cause the highest number of injuries in the United States, and Nevada contributes to about 300 fatalities annually. Accidents are most commonly caused by distracted driving, speeding or reckless driving, and driving under the influence. To win a personal injury case caused by a car accident, the offender must be found “at fault,” meaning they were purposely disregarding driving laws.

Product Liability

Every year, everyday products are recalled because they are responsible for illnesses, injuries, or negative long-term side effects. The most commonly-recalled products are products for children (such as toys, furniture, and child safety seats,) medication and medical devices, and household products.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can happen from slipping on anything from a wet floor to defective stairs. You may have a solid slip and fall case if an adequate warning wasn't provided for unsafe conditions. These kinds of accidents can cause a litany of injuries, from broken bones to lasting knee and ankle injuries.
